HP Ultrium LTO-2 Tape write protected

Hi,

Recently, something went wrong and I can no longer do tape backups.  The drive returns: The tape is write protected, although the swith on the back is in the correct position, I get this for any tape I put in.  I have updated the firmware and the driver (Windows 2003) and used the Diagnostic Tool as well, the same results.  Any ideas?

Thanks

Warranty call, the sensor must be broken.

Or sometimes it helps if you clean out the dust. Sensores are often optical, and if dust clogs the optical path, you'll get wrong results!

I've ordered a replacement drive from HP.  I'll update you all when that is in place.  Thanks
